Sleep as a "Medicine.
A physician bays that the cry for rest
has always been louder than tne cry
food. Not that it is more important.
but it is often harder to obtain. The best
rest comes from sound sleep. Of two men
or women, otherwise equal, the one who
sleeps the best will be the most healthy
and efficient. Sleep will do much to
cure irritability of temper, peevishness
and uneasiness. It will restore vijor to
n overworked brain. It will build up
nd mnke stroDg a v.esk body. It will 1
ure a headache. It will cure a broken '
spirit. It will cure sorrow. Indeed,

maladies that sleep will cure. The cure
of sleeplessness requires a clean, good
bed, sufficient exercise to promote weariness,-pleasant
occupation, good air, and
not too warm a room ; a clear conscience,
and avoidance of stimulants and narcot

haggard, nervous, who pass sleeple-s
nights, we commend the adoption of such
habits as will secure sleep ; otherwise lifr

How One ef the F.ddy MaterLlizers
was Brought to Grief.
Mrs. Huntoon, the person caught per
sonating a spirit, is a sister of William
Eddy, the "materializing" medium,
formerly of Chittenden, Vt., but now ot
Ancora, N. J., where he is practicing his
profession with eminent success. Hav
ing dissolved partnership with his brother
Horatio, the latter, in conjunction with
Mrs. Htintoo':. has been carrying on busi
ness at the old stand, making occasional
sorties into the country roundabout, and
inrnuiff up nt last in cter, Masi ,
where Mrs. Huntoon has come to grief in
the manner described by our correspon
At about half past seven o'clock the cir
cle was arranged, the lights were turned
low, and the invisible soon manifested
their pres:ence, at fict-t faintly and with
interruption, but'as "conditions" im
proved by some rearrangement of tlie
parties present, there was a marked
change in the degree of their power and
daring. At length the curtain was
thrown out at one side, and some ot us
couldgsee a low, bending figure, with ap
parently a night-capped head, seeking
recognition. It was, however, shy of the
light, which it was found necessary to di
minish considerably. Hands were now
presented at the orifice in the curtain,
faces appeared behind it, and at length
an old lady, professing to be the mother
of Mrs. Flint, desired recognition. Mrs.
Flint approached the curtain, when the
delicate, fluttering hand of the spirit
could be seen in eager effort to grasp her
daughter's hand, which of course con
tinued by its earthly magnetism to repel
theetherial form, causing it to dance be
fore, but to elude the grasp it professed
to seek. With the question, "is this my
dear mother?" to which was replied in
a hoarse and broken whisper, " yes, I am
your mother." Mrs. F. succeeded in ar
resting the attention of supposed spirit,
and at that instant seized and held the
proffered hand. Instantly lawyer Wood
turned on the gas which had been left
burning forthat purpose, revealing to tho
audience Mrs. Huntoon secure in the
hands of the captor, but endeavoring fo
sink upon the floor. Both Mr. Davis
and Mr. Flint rushed to the rescue. Mr.
Flint raised her and succeeded in setting
her on her feet, but while he was still en
deavoring to support her, and iu the
lace of tne entire audience, in the full
light of the gas, she threw herself from
his support, with' the exclamation,
"there, you've broke both my arms!"
and fell nearly prostrate upon the floor.

Always ia Danger.
"We are never safe. Perils surround ns
by night and by day. We never go into
the street without running personal ri-k
of death or disasler. A runaway horse, a
falling stone, the steam-car, the disease
that lurks within us. the sun that may
smite us, are but few among the foes that
lav in wait for our lives; but which of us
provides for such sudden calamity, or
remembers that f or the wn n t of some lit
tle token upon us friends may look vainly
for our return, and never know that in
some hospital our dumb lips try to steak
their names, our eager eyes look vainly
for their coming ? It is the more'strange
that we so rarely carry any record o
our own identity when we remember how
careful we are about our personal prop
erty. We mark eur eilver, our dogs ; we
brand our sheep ; we put our names uj-on
the clothes if they are to go to the
laundry. We know the danger 0 thieves,
and the power of accident, when a spoon,
or a handerchief is concerned, but we
feel our individuality so strongly that we
have no tearofloing'ourselves. Living,

feel as if e asserted ourselvea so strong

A Chinese Story of .Harder.
A Chinese merchant, late in August,
journeyed by river from Shaohong t
Hangehow with six hundred dollars in
pocket and bag. Two boatmen whom
lie had hired determined tolmin'er him.
Accordingly they moored the bout at
dusk in a secluded spot and remarked to
him that as one of them was tick they
could not go on to the village that night.
Their faces belied their tongues; the
merchant, suspecting foul play, hailed
four small boats and offered the fisher
men a dollar apiece if they would stay
by him all night. They, agreed ; tlie
night passed quietly. When morning
came the two convalescent sailors j. re
sented each fisherman with a dollar and
a half and the merchants compliments.
A fisherman's wife suggested that they
should go 011 board and thank the mei
chant for giving them more tbun they
had bargained for. Her husband as
sented; they stepped on board ; there lay
the merchant with his throat cut from
ear to car. The murderers offered them
a share of the spoils, ami the husband's
palm itched and his eyes did wink, l.ut
the good wife had a sensitive conscience.
" Vv hat !" she cried ; "here this ih r man
appealed to us for protection, becaue he
suspected he was in danger, and paid us
for it, too; and now Unit lie is murdered
are jie to reap the benefits '!' '
A Practical Jokp.
A Charlemont marketman. when de
livering goods one morning, discovered on
leaving the house of a customer a cu.-tard
pie setting in a window where the lady
of the house had placed it to cool for
dinner. He ntonce appropriated it, and
driving directly to the store of the lady's
husbanl, called him out and told him he
had " hooked " a nice custard pie, and if
he would get some cheese they would
have a nice time eating it. Of course
the cheese was forthcoming, and after
satisfactorily disposing of the pie the
question arose what to do with the plate.
The merchant said that he would take
care of that, and, suiting his actions to
his words, dashed it against the wail.
When the merchant went home to dinner
that day his wife ajiolonized for not hav
ing any desert, saying she made a custard
pie for dinner and left it in the window
to cool, and she supposed somt: boys
must have stolen it. Her husband wasn't
pie hungry, and seemed quite plcard
about something, but kept "mum."
Next morning the merchant, meeting the
marketman, sang out "pie!" I a reply
the other said : "Cheese! And whose
plate was that you smashed?"
A Spider's Large (aine.
Many remarkable anecdotes have hrvn
told illustrating the skill and seeming
intelligence of the subtle spider, but noue
more worthy of note than acireumstancf
which occurred the other day, and which
was witnessed by a numlier of cur osity
lovers. In the etllir of Mr. Nelson
Williams a spider had prepared his web
between a barrel and tub, and there, sus
pended from the ground, hung a smad
snake about ten or eleven lnihm in 1
length, ine iiireau 01 tne- v.-eo riMi ne- n
ingeniously twisted or v.oven around the
tail of the unfortunate reptile, aud it was
evident that he Lad beeu drawn tip from
the ground to a pen ion pos;ti0:.. Ihe 1

squirrninsr victim from one eo.-r.ei ef the I
web, probably waiting lor li'e to become j
extinct, when he wuld probably indulge i
in a reptile repa-t, as a rewaid for bi i
cunning. The snake remairud in this;
precarious attitude for thirtv-six hours j
after 4t was discovered, and then es
